This is a single centre trial involving Radiotherapy to see if outcomes can be improved in rectal cancer
RHYTHM-I: modulation of Radiotherapy according to HYpoxia: exploiting changes in the Tumour Microenvironment to improve outcome in rectal cancer
To assess the utility of FMISO-PET imaging in quantifying and defining the spatial deistribution of hypoxic regions within rectal cancers.
Can changes in tumour hypoxia and perfusion be seen after 8-10 fractions of CRT?
